Great place! Lots of Italian ice flavors, a few traditional soft serve ice cream flavors, hurricanes, milk shakes, etc. Very clean. All the employees were polite, helpful and patient.

Located just across from the Seven Presidents beach part, it is a great treat after a hot day in the sun. Good selection of flavors, and they let you mix and match, ice cream or italian ice.

If you’re going to be cash only have a working ATM. We walked 30 mins there to find out the atm was broken and they wouldn’t take credit card or our offer to come back later in the day and pay. For a summer ice...cream shop we have been going to for years this was pretty terrible service.More

We come to the lighthouse year round. The water is terrific and we love the fact you can mix and match flavors including soft gelato. We not wish they would add lime to their daily flavors instead of as a special Highly recommended
